Description : This book is a definitive reference work on American drinking, presenting results that are not based on the skewed and captive samples found in hospital treatment settings, but rather on the general population. This means that the study addresses not only problem drinkers and drinking problems but also documents in rich detail the much more common drinking patterns of the vast majority of Americans. Special attention is given, for the first time in such surveys, to drinking patterns among Blacks and Hispanics.

Description : Alcohol is a killer--1 of every 13 deaths in the United States is alcohol-related. In addition, 5 percent of the population consumes 50 percent of the alcohol. The authors take a close look at the problem in a "classy little study," as The Washington Post called this book. The Library Journal states, ". . . [T]his is one book that addresses solutions. . . . And it's enjoyably readable. . . . This is an excellent review for anyone in the alcoholism prevention business, and good background reading for the interested layperson." The Washington Post agrees: the book ". . . likely will wind up on the bookshelves of counselors, politicians, judges, medical professionals, and law enforcement officials throughout the country."

Description : This paper reviews epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of alcohol problems in the Armed Forces. Studies by Cahalan of drinking patterns in the United States Army indicated high rates of problem drinking for all ranks with greater prevalence for younger men and personnel at overseas bases. Comparison of male civilians and Army enlisted men revealed that enlisted men drank more heavily and had more alcohol-related problems than civilians of comparable age. A survey of United States Navy enlisted men corroborated the finding of high rates of problem drinking in the military population. Hospitalization rates for alcoholism increase sharply with age in the Navy male enlisted population -- from approximately 25 per 100,000 per year at age 18-25 to more than 400 per 100,000 at age 40. Alcoholics should be differentiated into subtypes based upon causal factors and prognosis; the present diagnostic scheme has a number of inadequacies. In particular, primary alcoholism should be differentiated from alcohol problems that are secondary to other psychiatric disorders. The Navy alcohol rehabilitation program is described and issues of treatment effectiveness are discussed. (Author).

Description : Intended for geography professors, students, and researchers, this publication explores some topics in the area of alcohol use and abuse that are potentially suited for geographical research. There are four chapters. Chapter 1 introduces some of the more familiar arguments for and against alcohol consumption. The second chapter deals with the cultural context in which drinking occurs and reviews some of the geographical variations in drinking practices, from both a global and a national perspective. Chapter 3 discusses why people drink heavily and what happens when they drink to excess. Also reviewed in this chapter are some attempts to estimate the spatial prevalence of alcoholism and other alcohol-related problems in the United States. The concluding chapter reviews some of the theories of alcohol use and abuse and examines options available for prevention and control. A bibliography concludes the publication. (RM)

Description : This volume is an important contribution to our understanding of culture and alcohol in the United States. Its appearance is also a milestone in the history of alcohol studies in American anthropology. Over the last six years, the volume's editors, initially along with Miriam Rodin, have served as the coorganizers of the Alcohol and Drug Study Group of the American Anthropological Association (AAA). In this capacity, they have organized sessions at the AAA and other meetings, greatly strengthened the research network with a regular and informative newsletter, and painstakingly promoted the publication of anthropological work on al cohol and drugs. Appearing just as the responsibility for the Study Group is passed on to others, this book is a fitting emblem of the care and energy with which its editors have built an institutional nexus for alcohol and drug anthropology in North America. The contents of this volume offer a uniquely wide sampling of the diversity of cultural patterns that make up the American experience with alcohol. The collective portrait the editors have assembled extends in several dimensions: through time and history, across such social differ entiations as gender, age-grade, and social class, and through such major social institutions as the church and the family. Clearly the dominant dimension of variation in the material that follows, however, is ethnicity. The book offers us a sampler of unprecedented richness of the different experiences with alcohol of American ethnoreligious groups.

Description : The one-of-a-kind exploration of effective alcohol prevention and treatment for Latinos-now and for the future! By the year 2020, the Latino population in the United States will increase to 60 million, making up 18 percent of all residents. Latinos and Alcohol Use/Abuse Revisited: Advances and Challenges for Prevention and Treatment Programs brings into sharp focus how present and future demographic shifts in Latino population are being felt in alcohol programs across the United States. Case studies and in-depth research clearly illustrate the practical steps various culturally competent programs recommend to effectively deal with alcohol use, prevention, and treatment for Latinos. Alcohol abuse, though rampant in Latino populations, has not received the attention that other types of drug abuse has received, even though the death rates, health problems, and financial costs from alcohol are staggering. Latinos and Alcohol Use/Abuse Revisited presents respected authorities tackling the tough questions about demographics, culturally competent research, and effective prevention and treatment programs. The book provides an up-to-date socio-demographic foundation, then builds upon current research and information to present a clear picture of the needs of various Latino populations for alcohol abuse programs now and in the future. Latinos and Alcohol Use/Abuse Revisited discusses: the Latino demographic profile—an overview patterns of need and treatment among Mexican-origin adults in central California alcohol abuse among Dominican-Americans the onset of alcohol and other drug use among gang members incarcerated Latinas, alcohol, and other drug abuse rural Latino grandparents raising grandchildren of substance abusing parents alcohol use among Puerto Rican active injecting drug users alcohol and other drug abuse prevention for high-risk youth a case study of a Puerto Rican community in Massachusetts detailed recommendations for prevention and treatment Latinos and Alcohol Use/Abuse Revisited is a detailed examination of prevention and treatment programs for Latinos, invaluable for substance abuse professionals, social workers, practitioners, and professionals in charge of alcohol prevention and treatment programs.
